The novel's opening lines define bibliolepsy: "a mawkishness derived from habitual aloneness and congenital desire. Manifestations: a quickening between the thighs and in the points of the breast, a broad aching V, when addresed by writers, books, bibliographies, dictionaries, xerox machine a sympathy for typists manuscripts. Etymologically related to Humbert Humbert's gross tenderness, though rarely possessing its callous tragedy; occassionally accompanied by a liking for rock and roll. The endless liogo-itch, desperately seeking, but it can get any satisfaction. Biblioleptic attacks are ussually followed by bouts of complete distaste for words."
